Registration is the formal admission of a student to a programme of study, or research, leading to a degree of the university or to any academic award for which a degree or other approved form of qualification is a necessary entry condition.

An Academic Year
Upon admission, a student is enrolled for an academic year.
­ Limuru Campus has two major semesters (of 15 weeks) and semester three which is optional (of 10 weeks).

  • August to December 1st Semester
  • January to April 2nd Semester
  • May to July (Optional) 3rd term

­ Nairobi, Nakuru and Machakos campuses have three equal semesters of 12 weeks each.
Full fees for each semester must be paid in order for a student to study in a given semester.

The official registration period is one week. Additional time is provided for late registration which will attract a penalty. These times are on the academic calendar.

Students are encouraged to register for the units load recommended by the department. Fewer units may be registered for depending on the student's ability to pay for them. Full fees for all the units must be paid before the examinations are taken. Registering for more units than one can pay for (consequences)

If a student registers for units that they are not able to pay for before the exams even though they would have done the course work, the units will be nullified and no course work mark will be carried forward. They will need to study for the units again.
